Skylarks is beautifully furnished and fitted out( Carolyn and Richard have thought of everything), we were so comfortable in the extremely large bed and completely at ease in the excellent kitchen, lounge and luxurious bathroom.

Carolyn and Richard work hard to make your stay as homely as possible from the Cornish Cream Tea to the full farmhouse breakfast...even made Eggs Benedict for me, although she never did before...hopefully an addition to the menu if you like your eggs this way....comfortable and clean room with additional fun from Belle and Rolo the Springadors adding to the...

We stayed here last weekend and can recommend it in every way. Very comfortable room, St Loy, with lovely view. Carolyn looked after us really well and the breakfast is superb with a big choice. There is a sitting room for guests with local information and complimentary port! The farm is well placed for visiting this part of Cornwall.

This place is great. Warm and friendly Lovely rooms and super hospitable hosts. I was impressed My daughter and I stopped for the night while doing the south west coastal path. We arrived a bit late and Caroline the hostess was kind enough to drive us to the local pub for dinner. Wonderful breakfast too. Highly recommend.

We "just" had five nights and wished we could stay longer. Very warm welcome, wonderful room with sea view (St Loy), wonderful host Carolyn who gave perfect advice about where to go and where to eat. Would definitely come back!

The rooms are perfectly appointed, breakfast menus are superb with many choices, and the hostess is gracious and thoughtful in all she does. It is in sight of the Atlantic with easy walking access, biking access, car and bus. We found it the perfect location to walk the South shore of Cornwall in the area between Penzance and Land's End.

I don't know what I can write to add anything more to all of the other positive comments here, because it's all been said already ! We stayed in one of the B&B rooms for two nights last week, and I can only echo other people's comments about the quality and cleanliness of the accommodation, and Carolyn's friendly and relaxed...

I came across Downs Barn Farm on the Farm Stay website as I had some gift vouchers to use. We were open minded about where in the UK to go but once we'd decided we wanted luxury accommodation near the sea this one really stood out from the crowd by a considerable distance! Location wise this is fantastic, a beautiful... More

Downs Barn Farm B&B and the self catering cottages are without doubt one of our favourite places to stay. Carolyn is a wonderful host and the new cottages are stunning! You cannot wish for more. Incredible!
